December 8, 2017

Meat Lovers may find it disconcerting their favorite foods are attributed to so many problems... yet HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. And arming people with the truth is the WAY to true freedom. A quality product could be judged by the following characteristics:

 

Manure Runoff from the Lagoons and Application of phosphorus fertilizer

 

Dung dust that migrated away from the feedlots and comprised environmental injustice to nearby communities. 

 

Discharges of toxic water pollution from the slaughterhouse

 

Methane emitted

 

CO2 Emitted


Antibiotics wasted and cost of resistant infections. 

 

Cropland, fertilizers and Agrichemcals used on feed crops

 

Cancer Hazard designation (at WHO ad IARC) for processed meats (Class 1) and Red meats (class 2)

 

Pain of animals due to slaughter and mutilation

 

confinement systems employed

 

Slaughterline speed and OXFAM declaration of concern for worker conditions at the slaughter plants

 

Dioxin and other fat-soluble pollution present

 

Cost of hospitalization related to slaughterhouse worker lacerations and depression 

 

Cost of Toxic Algae blooms in response and lost economic activity due to strain on tourism

 

Cost in lost productivity due to Obesity and chronic illness
